I can not believe a presidential hopeful would make such remarks about Americans....He gave up on winning their support..HE GAVE UP???...I wonder if his wealthy supporters gave up also...but I ask what did they give up on??
Another question he needs to answer and it's important...what does he think the income is for middle America? I hear he said $200,000 and up....in what country was this?? certainly not our America....is he so out of touch with the common man?? it looks as though he is and he will never get my vote

What he said was true. 47 percent of the people want the Government to support them and Obama has made them more dependent than ever. He (Obama) stated in 1998 that he wanted to take from the workers and divide it out to those that do not work so they could be equal. That political message will be out sometime in the next couple of weeks according to MNBC news. What people do not realize is Mitt and Ann ate on an ironing board when they first got married - they lived in a basement appartment. He has worked and earned every dime he has made. You are being feed a bunch of BS.

Took Obmar two years to make/find his birth certificate so Romney still has two more years before he has to show his taxes. WE MUST BE EQUAL AND FAIR.

Romney believing and preaching upward mobility for all citizens does indeed conflict with Obama believing and preaching redistribution of other people's money and efforts. The jerks assaulting Romney actually believe that people receiving free money from the government pay excise and sales taxes when they use that money to buy gasoline, alcohol, etc. They then have the nerve to complain about paying taxes.

Many Liberals are insane.
